Good Wednesday morning to you! Britney Glaser here in the KPLC 7Newsroom with a look at what's ahead on today's Sunrise:
*We are one step closer to seeing the plans for the National Hurricane Museum and Science Center in Lake Charles become a reality. The project itself will cost up to $70 million. Last night, the Port of Lake Charles came to an agreement to give the museum $3 million.
